IBM ISS announces IPS for small offices

GX 3002 gateway tool released

IBM's Internet Security System division has announced an intrusion-prevention system, the GX 3002, designed primarily to guard against attacks against small branch offices or machines, such as bank ATMs or kiosks.

The ISS Proventia Network Intrusion Prevention System GX30002 is an gateway-based appliance intended to support a single-network segment at up to 10Mpbs throughput, says Jim Brennan, ISS marketing manager. The GX300 is based on the same intrusion-prevention functionality found in higher-speed ISS equipment.

"The GX 3002 works in three basic modes, which are blocking; pure detection and monitoring; and an in-line simulation that lets you see what you would have blocked if you turn blocking on," Brennan says. The GX 3002 can be managed via the ISS central management console, SiteProtector. It can also be managed via a simple Web browser interface.

Brennan says the GX 3002, priced at US$4,000, is available in an appliance model he described as a two-port Ethernet "desktop form factor."

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
